Radio Venice is a weekly webcast, streaming live from Breakwater Studios in Venice, California.

Founded by Michael Jost, Rae Stanton and Roy Edwards in the summer of 2015 their mission is to showcase the unique blend of music that passes through Venice Beach and bring the magical sound of Breakwater Studios to a worldwide audience.

Join their hosts Michael and Tonan each week and absorb that Venice Beach Sound captured live in this eclectic studio overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Watch local and traveling musicians, and hear the sounds of Venice embedded within … this is the very best Venice has to offer.

Now for the whole world to experience!

Here is a message from co-producer Rae Stanton.

I am so damn proud of what we’ve created here at Radio Venice.  I cannot believe we’ve been live streaming for 5 years … what started with an idea from Michael Jost, came to life with a strong dose of my “get shit done” vibes, throw in a bit of tech support from Roy Edwards and our little radio show was born back in 2015!

Even back then we noticed that venues in and around Venice were struggling, if not closing, so we wanted to provide a space for local and touring musicians to play their music. Since then we’ve added co-host

Tonan Ruiz and enhanced the atmosphere with the help of legend Barry Conley and his Outofcontrol-atron!!
When Covid hit, we stepped it up a notch and started streaming from remote locations allowing us to bring in musicians worldwide. Since 2015 we’ve showcased over 300 musical guests from all corners of the globe, culminating in tomorrow’s Anniversary Show … 4 hours and 20 minutes of live music!!
I’m extremely happy to say we’ve got a KICKASS lineup that is chock full of some of the strongest, fierce and talented women I have the pleasure of knowing!

And the talent across the board is phenomenal … in order of appearance
